Michael Pichler - Fascinating world of the Middle Ages
Skriptorium provides a global overview of the finest and most significant facsimile editions. Academically commented facsimile editions today enable us to rediscover the most valuable manuscripts. These academic annotations are not only destined for use by research but also for collectors and connoisseurs who wish to access both texts and pictures of the individual manuscripts. You would like to know how a facsimile edition is made? Then read our article What is a facsimile?
Our facsimile library ranges from antiquity, with the Vergilius Vaticanus, to Romanesque (Bestiarium) and Gothic (Wenzelsbibel) and down to Italian book painting of the Gothic and Renaissance periods (Farnese Hours) and on to the manuscripts of the late Flemish masters (The Black Hours). It covers Insular illumination, with the Book of Kells, as well as Carolingian (Dagulf-Psalter) and Ottonian book painting, with the Bamberg Apocalypse.
We may also help you to find a copy of out of print facsimile editions. Find out more about our search service under Facsimile out of print?
In the Replica section we invite you to get to know other aspects of medieval life. You may for example chose from a wide range of armoury parts, swords and complete armours. You can even put together your own real suit of armour for yourself.
Moreover, you will find replicas of medieval jewellery. The jewellery does not only look authentic, it is also hand-made using the traditional and very labour intensive historic methods.
